Top-Quality Re-Roofing Services in Roseville, CA
It is important to replace your roof once there are any signs of severe damage that could potentially lead to complete roof failure. You want to avoid a situation where water seeps into the interior of your home, causing structural damage and destroying valuable property. That is why it is critical to have your roof routinely inspected to determine if there are any roofing issues that need to be resolved. Also, it doesn’t hurt to occasionally inspect the interior of your home, especially the attic, for water stains and streaks that may signal a roof leak.
Keep in mind, however, that a roof leak or broken shingle does not automatically mean the entire roof needs to be replaced. Always consult a roofing specialist to determine the best option for remedying a roofing problem.
Causes of Roof Damage
There are many reasons your roof might prematurely fail and need to be replaced including:
- Poorly done installation
- Not installing flashing
- Extreme weather conditions
- Using low-quality roofing materials
- Accumulation of moisture and heat due to poor ventilation in your attic
Sometimes, the roof may have just run its natural course and reached its lifespan limit, deteriorating over time and needing to be replaced.

What You Should Know Before Replacing Your Roof
Before undertaking an installation to replace your damaged roof, it is a good idea to know what to expect in the replacement process. Let’s look at some factors you should consider.
Reroofing is a significant investment and the total costs of replacing your roof varies, depending on a number of factors:
The type of roofing material you use affects the cost. With so many options on the market today, always consult an expert roofing specialist to help guide you in making the right decision on roofing products that match your budget and meet your individual needs and preferences. Asphalt shingles are relatively cheap, compared to natural slate, architectural and concrete shingles.
Size and Type of Roof
The larger the square footage, the higher the costs associated with roof replacement. Also, the type of roof affects the cost. Typically, flat and gable roofs are relatively cheaper to replace than butterfly and A-frame roofs.
Roofing Contractor Used
Always consider the installation fee/labor costs of the roofing contractor you plan to hire; shop around and know your options. Also, get a comprehensive estimate from your contractor that includes the costs of installation and roofing materials, so there are no surprises.

Keep or Rip Out Existing Roof Shingle Layer?
Should you reroof by putting a new layer of shingles over the old shingle outlay or alternatively, do you rip out the existing roof and do a completely new roof installation? Although depending on where you live, there are laws that prohibit putting a new layer over the pre-existing roof structure, some places do allow you to do so. This method may save you some time and money.
However, there are some drawbacks that you should be aware of if you plan to layer over the existing structure:
- Additional Weight: The added layer(s) can result in a heavier roof, putting extra pressure on the underlying roofing structure. This can prove dangerous and lead to premature damage.
- Underlying Roofing Issues: By putting a new layer over an old roofing structure, you might miss some issues/problems that caused the roof to be damaged in the first place. A professional roofing technician would be able to avoid such issues by doing a thorough inspection of the existing layer to resolve any underlying structural issues including removal of bumps and bubbles that could diminish the aesthetic appeal of the new roof.
